Bumblebee Dress Pattern Available!

It's here!!!!!  Thanks to my wonderful testers I can now announce that you can purchase and download the
Bumblebee Dress sewing pattern!

Click Here!

This is my first pattern for purchase....... it all started back in October 2012 when I sewed the first
"Bumblebee Dress" and it got it's name!
Click Here to read about it!

Now, I can offer it in sizes 3m-6 with several different variations!!! 
(It's funny to go back to my old posts and see how my photography has improved!!!)

View A has the adorable ruffle bodice with 3/4 length ruffle sleeves!
View B has the sweet neck ruffle that adds a special detail to the back and a fun skirt ruffle for exceptional twirling!

You can switch out sleeve options, bodice options, and skirt options!  

I want to see what you come up with!  Suzanne at Pattern Revolution and has started a "Link Party" where you can link up a picture of the version you have sewn!  I would love to see all the wonderful creations!

Before I show you some of the awesome tester photos I also wanted to let you know that I will work on larger sizes.  I'm not as comfortable with the measurements for older girls but I know that there are many of you out there that would be willing to test and help me make it work!  If you purchase the version today I will send you an updated sizing to include 6x-12.  It will take a while to make sure I have all the measurements and testing done but I will be sure to announce it on the blog when it's ready!  (And when I'm ready for testers!!!)

Sizes 7-12 are complete!  The instant download will have sizes 3m-6 on pages 1-30 and sizes 7-12 on pages 31-41
Now, here's some eye candy for you!  All my testers were so helpful and creative - these fabric choices had me swooning!
